Our lifestyle, habits, and daily routines change over time. Would you like to stroll around the orchards and breathe in the fragrance of tomatoes and cucumbers? Do you sometimes think about the idea of settling in an Aegean town? Even if there is no fresh air, water, red cheeks people, there are organic markets in Istanbul that offer you the organic flavors of Anatolia and natural cleaning products. I want to mention where you can buy these organic products for those who are curious.
PS. During the full lockdown, which is between 29th April and 17th May, the open markets and shops mentioned in this post might be closed.
